Massage Q & A

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is integrative medicine in which a certified professional manipulates muscle, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue, and skin using varying degrees of pressure. Massage offers a variety of health benefits, especially when offered with standard treatments for certain medical conditions.

What can massage therapy treat?

Massage therapy is an effective treatment option for reducing stress, decreasing muscle tension, and relieving pain. People dealing with the stress and pain of cancer, fibromyalgia, heart disease, or other health conditions can benefit from receiving regular massage therapy.

What type of massage do I need?

Your massage therapist helps you choose an appropriate massage based on your activities, stress level, or any aches and pains you experience. The MediSpa At Choto offers a variety of massage therapies, including:

Swedish massage

One of the most common massage techniques, Swedish massage is a full-body massage that decreases muscle tension and promotes relaxation. If daily activities such as exercise or sitting for long periods of time in front of a computer cause pain, Swedish massage is a good option for relief. Swedish massage therapists use long strokes, kneading, and circular movements.

Deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage therapy but is more suitable for people with injuries, athletes, or people with chronic pain conditions. Deep tissue massage therapists apply more pressure, which can be painful at times, to reach deep muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage can also increase blood flow and reduce inflammation.

Hot stone massage

In a hot stone massage, your therapist applies heated stones to specific areas of your body. They may hold stones in their hands while massaging you to get deeper into the muscle and apply more pressure.

Sports massage

A sports massage is used if you’re an athlete or active. It’s designed to help you maintain your activity and to prevent and address injuries sustained while engaging in your favorite sports activity.

What other ways can I relieve pain and tense muscles?

In addition to massage therapy, you may benefit from using the detox sauna blanket at MediSpa At Choto.

Detox sauna blanket

A detox sauna blanket relieves aches and pains in your muscles through infrared heat. You lie on the heated blanket and receive infrared heat that relieves tense muscles, detoxes the body, and improves your immune system. It’s also thought to increase metabolism and improve cell health.
